Interaction with Guests
I enjoy sharing breakfast with my guests while helping them figure out their visit around the city.
The house is in a cul-de-sac, therefore it is super safe. Not that the neighborhood is not safe, but it feel just extra safer having to access a gate to enter in the street in which my house is located.
My house is not right in the busy touristic center but neither too far, it is just six blocks away (walking distance). If you are like many of my previous guests, living in this part of the city will make you feel more “involved” in real local life than if you were to stay in a crowed youth hostel near Plaza de Armas. As well, there are plenty of places all the same, for tourists who like to drink beers and go to Starbucks for coffee. .
There are two supermarkets half a block away from the house, and plenty of local businesses (pharmacies, bakeries, restaurants).
I will provide you with a detailed sheet of directions (in English and Spanish) to get to my place. The airport is only 10 minutes by taxi from my house. The bus station is 8 minutes away by taxi.
If you take a taxi from the airport to my house it will be less expensive, but not all taxis are reliable, safe or know how to get to my house. For this reason, I offer PICK UP FROM THE AIRPORT as an option for you to consider. The price for this service will be 20 soles per ride.

TO CLEAN AFTER YOURSELF - SPECIALLY IN THE COMMON AREAS
Monica was extremely helpful and was always kind and cheerful. Upon arrival she briefed us with all the house rules, great places to visit in Cusco, and directions (including a very cute hand drawn map of Cusco) to all the local markets and stores that would be useful to a traveller in Cusco. Her home was very cozy and the neighborhood felt safe and was within walking distance to the main plaza.
My friend and I stayed at Monica's for a little over a month. She is a great host with a wealth of information and a warm heart. She was accommodating throughout our stay with helpful tips along the way. She helped us with our Spanish and made amazing fresh toast. She was flexible in making my friend vegetarian options for breakfast as well. Overall, Monica and her home are both a gem in Cusco and I'm glad we were able to spend our time there.
We spent four days in Monica's home/new apartment and were treated to her generous offerings of breakfast and local / regional knowledge. Her communications with us were clearly understood by our cab driver and her help on our visit to Machu Picchu was invaluable. The space was clean and orderly and close to markets and the main plaza. We would highly recommend Monica's room or apartment to all. Thank you Monica for your active support of our stay in Cusco.
